We are broadly interested in the role of microorganisms in the environment and how environmental changes alter the structure and function of microbial communities. We are interested in how microbial communities respond to changes in local resources (e.g., carbon, phosphorus). These responses may include differences in community composition, species interactions, functional traits, and ecosystem processes. Our research uses a mixture of field observations, laboratory experimentation, bioinformatics, and theory. Learn more about our current work here and opportunities to join our group here.
We have a number of ongoing projects that explore the ecology and physiology of microbial communities across ecosystems.
We are a new but growing reserach group. Learn more about the research group and our interests.
